Over 250,000 people just in Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, registered to vote in the ten days following the census. In issuing the data, the United Nations Kinshasa office spokesman Stephane Dujarric specified that the rapid registration showed support and hopes of the Congolese people in the elections. Thousands of people registered in the electoral lists on Wednesday, while unrest was underway in the capital between police and groups of demonstrators that took the streets in protest against the postponement of the elections and consequential six months extension of the transitional government instated following peace accords that ended a conflict begin in 1998. The UN Mission in DR-Congo (MONUC) launched an appeal to the Congolese to show their sense of responsibility in dealing with the National Parliament's decision to extend the political transitional period by six months until the end of the year by avoiding any excesses. Based on data issued by the CEI (Independent Electoral Commission), some 6,000 functionaries have been sent starting June 20 to 1,143 voter registration centres for the operations. The census, begun in the capital, will progressively extend to all the provinces of the nation. The estimated number of voters, on a population of over 56-million, should be of around 28-million.
